Three Dimensional
Hot Stone Massage Trainings

Being massaged with heat, versus simply leaving it in place, actually melts the tissue and opens tight muscles twice as fast as hands alone can ever do.  Hot stones are also extremely grounding, calming a client and helping them to drop even deeper into the full experience of your massage.  The benefits are simply endless and the experience out of this world. 

On hot summer days, or when injuries or inflammation exists, cool stones are a delicious, refreshing effective alternative to using heat.  Cold stones can be used by themselves or along side the hot stones.  Included in my hot stone classes is a small section on the methods, benefits and use of cold stone therapy.

The Trainings that I offer in Hot Stone Massage are designed to be very thorough, intricate, creative and fun, teaching you all that you would need to know to perform a safe, flowing and marvelous hot stone massage.  With my magical three dimensional approach, the client never has be inconvenienced by the placement or removal of the stones.  I teach a coherent and simple system of stone management that allows for a seamless integration of the stones into your massage.  You are shown many secrets of a sensational hot stone massage that are left out of most classes that are taught.  This is one hot stone massage your clients will never want to end.
